Beaucarnea recurvata - Ponytail PalmRegular price $15.00
A member of the Asparagus family (Asparagaceae), Beaucarnea is a drought tolerant, easy-care plant to grow. It has a thick, caudex base where it stores water, and long, narrow, dark leaves flowing from the base, much like a fountain or a ponytail. Growing taller as it matures, this slow-grower is both elegant and curious. Ponytail Palms are a perfect choice for those looking for a low-maintenance plant, and one that will last in your collection for a very long time, if cared for correctly.
